7:02 am
technicians will be back inside the bunker for looking for and removing improvised explosives. the body will stay at least until this bomb threat is over. >> we're here to celebrate answered prayer. >> reporter: they called it a praise vigil people in ethan's community gathering last night to give thanks the little boy was safely back with his mother. fbi photos show the exterior of the underground bunker. bomb technicians have removed two improvised explosives, one inside the bunker the other inside this pvc pipe that jimmy lee dykes used to talk to negotiators. the standoff ended monday when dykes climbed the eight-foot ladder to get supplies. as he reached up he was off balance and vulnerable. when dykes opened the door rescue team members dropped two stun grenades their loud noises and flashes disoriented.
7:03 am
within seconds has members entered the bunker. they believe dykes fired first but missed. agents returned fire killing dykes and rescuing the boy. fbi agents have repeatedly rehearsayed the raid using a mockup of the bunker. the recent photos show ethan with his mother. her statement said "i woke up this morning to the most beautiful sight, my sweet, little boy. i can't describe how incredible it is to hold him again." but ethan now feels like family to people like signedy steiner, her grandson was on the same school bus. >> i think because of me being a grandmother that that's the way i looked at it. >> reporter: a lot of people in this town feel that way? >> yes. >> reporter: people in this small community know that ethan and his mother could use a break so they're trying to scrape together enough money to send the two of them to disney world. >> mark strassmann thank you. senior correspondent john miller is a former fbi assistant
7:04 am
director. john, good morning. i know you've been doing a lot of reporting on this. what have you learned about this case? >> well, a couple of things. one thing is that in the course of these negotiations, you know they always look for what the negotiators call a tpi, a third party intermediary as they negotiate they can bring in a co-worker, a friend somebody that the hostage taker likes and respects. sometimes that can help move things along, and with jimmy lee dykes there was no tpi. they worked with the dale county sheriff and said find us that person and they said he has no friends. the closest thing he had to a friend was charlie poland the bus driver that he killed. >> john, you've talked to some officials that reviewed the videotape taken by the security camera on the bus. what does that video show? >> we always thought something like in a fast-moving thing he would have gotten on the bus, the bus driver would have resisted, he would have shot him
7:05 am
and then taken a kid. this videotape doesn't unfold over seconds. it unfolds over minutes and he comes on the bus and he knows the bus driver. the bus driver had dropped a pie off at his house that day and he says "i want two children" and charlie poland opens the emergency door lets all the children escape but ethan is sitting in the front row seat and he just freezes and then for the next few minutes, dykes is saying, i'm taking this boy with me and charlie poland is saying no you're not and dykes says if you try to stop me from taking this boy i'm going to shoot you, and you can tell on the video that the driver is frightened but he stands his ground and then dykes says does what he says he's going to do he shoots him and kills him and then takes ethan and that's how this whole thing begins but as we're learning more of those details, the picture of this very strange man and the heroic efforts of the bus driver are starting to come more into focus. >> john miller thanks. john will be back later with a

closer look at the fbi's hostage rescue team, the unit that is saving lives in this country and around the world. a powerful earthquake triggered a tsunami that killed at least five people in the south pacific this morning. the 8.0 magnitude quake struck off the solomon islands, the tsunami measuring five feet high, swamped several villages. the solomons sit on the so-called ring of fire an active earthquake zone. here in the northeast blizzard conditions could possibly be by friday. meteorologist david bernard is watching it for us. good morning what can we expect from this storm? >> charlie we're just beginning to see this storm take shape, at least as far as what its potential could be. if we look at radar this morning we've had a weak clipper moving across parts of the northeast, there's been light snow showers in boston overnight but this has nothing to do with the coastal storm that's likely going to develop on friday and again by friday night, located somewhere off the new england coastline and exactly where that location is, and exactly how strong it
7:07 am
isis will have everything to do with how bad the storm could be. this is a general outline where we think the worst weather will be beginning friday morning and going into early saturday morning within this area there's the potential for heavy, maybe excessive snow, this could be a crippling snowstorm in some areas. blizzard conditions to be possible. eastern long island, eastern connecticut and going into southeastern new england and also coastal flooding that may also be a concern. already this morning we do have some watches, boston and southern new hampshire and manchester and maine, portland they've extended the winter storm watch that far to the north. as we go throughout the day today and especially tonight we're going to see these watches and warnings expand as we have a better detail on exactly what the potential with this storm is, that everybody needs to be ready across the i-95 corridor for some major disruptions as we go toward the end of the week. >> we'll be watching closely.
7:08 am
david bernard thank you. get ready for some big changes in your mail service, nancy cordes is on capitol hill this morning with the news. nancy, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. yes, its u.s. postal service cbs news has learned will announce at this hour that it intends to halt saturday delivery of first class mail by this summer august 1st, that means most mailers, letters and catalogues would cease coming to people's homes saturdays and this would be the end of a 150-year tradition. the plan to shrink delivery from six days a week to five would only affect first class mail while packages mail order medicines, priority and express mail would still get delivered on saturdays. oklahoma republican senator tom coburn says the move will save the struggling postal service $2 billion a year. >> it's a proper business
7:09 am
decision and long run good decision for the post office and americans. >> reporter: the postal service has lost $41 billion over the past six years, as more and more americans turn to private shippers e-mail and online banking. to save money the postal service slashed hours of service at about half the nation's 26,000 post offices, and trimmed its workforce by 35%, but it wasn't enough. david walker, a former government watchdog is part of a panel looking at possible postal reforms. >> it won't come close to solving the postal service's problems. it's got to look at more fundamental changes in its infrastructure, its compensation costs, its retirement obligations and also what it does and who does its business. >> reporter: but there's just so much the postal service can do without congressional approval. despite years of begging by postmasters general, congress never passed a reform bill that would have given the postal service more flexibility to
7:10 am
modernize and streamline its service. sometimes the postal service makes these announcements because they're trying to force congress to acts. is that what's happening here? >> no i don't think so at all. they're in survival mode. you're not going to have any post office. here's the alternative. they're losing $25 million a day, a day. they have to do something. >> reporter: technically the postal service is not allowed to reduce its service unless congress changes the law, but lawyers for the postal service think that they have figured out a way around this and norah, even the president has endorsed this move. in the past it was part of his deficit reduction package last year. >> nancy cordes thanks. john brennan is said to make his case on capitol hill to become cia director. leaked memo spells out the link
7:11 am
for americans being killed because of terrorism. >> reporter: good morning and good morning out west. that unclassified memo was written by the justice department sent to some members of congress last summer, never intended to be made public but it leaked this week. most likely because the senate is holding hearings tomorrow on the nomination of john brennan to head the cia. he's the architect of the program, and the leak now has the white house on the defensive. administration officials argued forcefully tuesday the targeted killing of terrorists who are american citizens often by drone strikes is acceptable policy in the battle to keep america safe. >> these strikes are legal. they are ethical and they are wise. >> we only take these kinds of actions when there is an eminent threat when capture is not feasible and when we are confident we're doing so in a way that's consistent with federal and international law. >> reporter: but the administration gives itself wide latitude on what constitutes an eminent threat. the memo reads the administration does not require
7:12 am
clear evidence that a specific attack will take place in the immediate future. and a u.s. citizen can be targeted if they're believed to be a senior operational leader of al qaeda, engaged in planning operations to kill americans. anwar al awlaki was the highest al qaeda killed by a drone, and samir khan killed in 2011. >> you're taking away a u.s. citizen's due process. doesn't it deserve a broader debate? >> we understand these are weighty matters, that these are serious issues and they deserve the kind of considerate approach this president has taken. >> reporter: white house officials, including john brennan when he was the president's counterterrorism adviser have in the past made the case that the strikes are in the u.s. national security interest. >> the purpose of a strike against a particular individual is to stop him before he can carry out his attack and kill
7:13 am
innocents. >> reporter: and of the lethal drone strikes including the one that killed awlaki have been in yemen and today the "new york times" reveals those drones launched from a base inside saudi arabia a location the government has been trying to keep secret because of saudi sensitivities. that too could come up in the hearing. the deficit will drop to $845 billion, that would happen if there's no deal to head off the automatic spending cuts known as the sequester. if they happen the cbo projects the economy would grow 1.4%. republicans say president obama's latest offer is nothing new and means higher taxes. the president believes the cuts would hurt the economy and he's willing to settle for a short term fix. >> if congress can't act immediately on a bigger package
7:14 am
f they can't get a bigger package done by the time the sequester is scheduled to go into effect, then i believe they should at least pass a smaller package of spending cuts and tax reforms that would delay the economically damaging effects of the sequester for a few more months until congress finds a way. >> cbs news political director john dickerson is in washington, john good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> another deadline in washington, another proposal for a short term fix without any specifics about how to do it and a bunch of people, thousands of people facing job losses. is this about the president trying to gain the political upper hand? >> you sound tired of these skirmishes norah? they've been going on two years this is chapter 87 in a dreary book. this is both sides trying to gain leverage. they're trying to put the budget process on some sensible footing, stop going from crisis
7:15 am
to crisis to crisis. the problem is that they can't come to an agreement. what republicans see in this latest move from the president is a little bit of nervousness on his part which is to say the economic damage of these constant battles is something he's now more worried about than say he was in the last fights we had over the debt limit and fiscal cliff. >> john can the gop win this fight? they lost the last two budget battles? >> they did and that's the way a lot of republicans see it. what's different is two things they think they can blame the president for the sequester in the first place, the white house did suggest it but republicans voted for it. the other bigger thing they see the president worried about his legacy which is to say if the economy in the white house believes it's poised for recovery but the constant fights keep a lid on any economic recovery, the president wants to finish his second term with a strong economy so if he can get this budget process regularized
7:16 am
he might have that happen. that puts pressure on him, maybe republicans can use that in some way. >> eric cantor outlined a new agenda for the gop. what do you think of the agenda he outlined? >> the agenda is an attempt to define the republican party outside of the budget battles to say we believe in other things that affect you american voters in your daily life. the problem is that you've got to clear this budget mess out of the way before you can make that pitch because at the heart of these budget fights are real big problems that have a big effect on the economy that is still the most important issue and getting the economy growing is still the most important thing lawmakers can do until they have a solution to that these other problems are not going to get an airing. >> john dickerson thanks. time to show you some of this morning's headlines "the new york times" finds widespread flaws in the american election support. the pew report ranked 50 states on wait times, lost votes and an sentee ballots.

7:40 am
800-pound gorilla of earthquake. by rights they shouldn't exist. when they exist, they dissipate the energy. so we shouldn't have 9 pont 0 which devastated fukushima. now we realize a fault line is like a battery, accumulating energy across many cycles and it's game-changer. it means we may have to rewrite all the textbooks on these. >> so we can predict these? >> no. it means it's even more predictable. even a minor fault can sustain a 9.0 earthquake when by rights we should be. we're back to the dark ages where even off the coast of the united states, even an innocent fault may sustain the monster 9.0. >> based on this new theory could any of these super quakes occur in the united states? >> one is the cascade ya off the coast of seattle, portland, and

the flat section heading out of hayward. that's traffic. here's lawrence. >> a lot of sunshine coming our way today still chilly temperatures out the door in spots. a great day ahead as we see plenty of sunshine by the afternoon overlooking san jose. temperature there 40 degrees. still some 30s showing up in the valleys. by the afternoon, some sunshine, plus cool temperatures. highs only in the 50s and low 60s. speaking of cool, got some storm clouds rolling in toward the bay area for tomorrow. a cold system, showers on thursday and friday.
7:58 am
it's 8:00 a.m., welcome back to "cbs this morning." after weeks of bitter cold, the northeast is now bracing for its first major blizzard of the season. some areas could see 36 inches of snow, plus there's some of the most amazing pictures we've
7:59 am
ever shown you. we'll check back with a team that put gps tracking devices on great white sharks. but first here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. fbi bomb technicians are still inside the bunker. they're looking for and removing improvised explosives left behind. >> there will be a birthday like no other for little boy ethan. he was held hostage under ground for nearly a week. >> as we learn more details of this very strange man and the heroics of the bus driver are starting to come more into focus. cbs news learns today of the postal service's intentions to halt saturday service this summer, breaking a 150-year tradition. >> a leaked memo spells out a case for killing americans linked to terrorism. >> you're taking away a u.s. citizen's due process, doesn't it deserve a broader debate? >> another deadline in washington and another term for a short-term fix.

8:01 am
the impact looks like late thursday night but friday is the big day going into saturday morning. right now we're talking snow showers moving across new england this morning, but, again, this has nothing do with the big coastal storm that's likely to develop as we go into tomorrow night and friday. now, anywhere in this pink area, we're talking heavy snow, maybe blizzard conditions and in the coastal areas, some minor coastal flooding is going to be a possibility. we have winter storm watches for boston manchester and portland where at least six inches of snow is very likely in these areas. again, be ready for major travel disruptions this week. for "cbs this morning" i'm david bernard in miami. neither snow nor rain nor heat nor the dark of night keeps the post office from delivering mail but deep budget cuts will. well, the u.s. postal service wants to end saturday delivery starting this summer. the announcement will be made later today. packages, medicine and priority express mail would still get

delivered on saturday. over the past six years the postal office has lost $41 billion as more use private shipping companies, e-mail and online banking. >> the raid that saved a 5-year-old alabama boy from his kidnapper is putting the spotlight on a little known group. they're known as the hostage rescue team. cbs correspondent john miller is back with an inside look at this elite unit. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. they are the law enforcement equivalent of u.s. special forces. the unit is simply known as hrt. the special agents who make up this team are called operators, and many of their missions are classified. but with the hrt in the headline this week i asked sean joyce, the number two man at the fbi for some insight into this special unit. >> the impetus for this hostage rescue unit evolved after the 1972 olympics in munich.
8:03 am
>> 11 israeli athletes were killed during a hostage standoff. before the olympic games came to the united states, there was a need for a highly specialized tactical team that could take on a hostage situation. sean joyce was a member but now a director of the fbi. >> it's an elite unit. they really have special skills. not only do they have their obviously physical skills, the mental skills, but they also have the intrinsic values that i think is necessary to be an hrt operator. while everyone on the team is a certified diver, so many times we're going to use our maritime capabilities. our breaching capability is extensive. i think it matches any counter terrorist team throughout the world. >> months of training are required to become a member of the host tag rescue team. since 1983 only 300 agents have made it through.
8:04 am
the test to become an hrt operator is meant to make or break you. >> it is a very strenuous two-week period that challenges you both mentally and physically. when you're completely tired, haven't slept for many, many hours, where your body has physically been broken down and then how do you react. >> the hostage rescue team has learned, reacted, and evolved over 30 years. from the 1993 siege in waco texas where an assault on the flaming compound failed and 74 men, women, and children died to arrests of countless terrorist suspects to challenging deployments in iraq and afghanistan or more recently the week-long hostage standoff in alabama. >> we want the best tactical assets to be present at that type of a situation. >> after watching the kidnapper jimmy lee dykes through a tiny camera placed in the bunker law enforcement officials say he was becoming more and more erratic. dykes had bombs and guns and a 5-year-old boy hostage.
8:05 am
the plan to enter the bunker had been rehearsed over and over in a full-sized mockup nearby. it was time to move. >> i think it's just heroic men doing their job. you know, they went down there, they neutralized the subject, and they were able to rescue ethan and brought him up the stairs and was able to reunite him with his mother. that's what the mission is all about and they did it. >> so, john, these rescue teams play a huge role. what do they do between hostage situations. >> you know, the old answer to that, charlie, was they were constantly training, but that has not been the case. for the last ten years they have been deployed over and over again to do sfes or sensitive sight evaluations. in iraq afghanistan and place like yemen where they go in right behind you u.s. special forces and after special forces secure the area -- remember these guys are a super s.w.a.t.
8:06 am
team but also fbi agents. they conduct the search, gather the evidence and do it very quickly because they know time on target is very limited before the bad guys are coming the hill, so they have perfected that as an art. they have been involved in several firing fights overseas as well. >> ethan's mom says how grateful she is. >> we were thinking about her. >> yeah, john, miller, thank you. super skiing star, lindsey vonn was hurt yesterday in a violent crash at the world championships in austria all captured on camera. the most decorated american ever is expected to miss the rest of the season. michelle miller reports on the accident just a year before the next olympics. >> reporter: lindsey vonn was 12 tenths of a second out of first place in the super-g when tragedy struck. she appeared to lose control while landing a jump somersaulted through a gate and then tumbled several hundred feet down the slope.
8:07 am
it left her competitors in shock. >> she's in good shape and did ability was also very good. >> reporter: vonn was airlifted to a nearby hospital. and will need surgery. she tore ligaments in her right knee and broke a bone in her left leg. >> virtually every world cup race has an injury and they're not pretty. when you're going 60, 70 miles an hour on one hair edge the chances of getting hurt are high. >> reporter: with 59 world cup wins, vonn is known for pushing boundaries and taking risks. >> i'm not afraid of anything really. never been afraid on skis remember. that's why i have so many speeding tickets with my car. >> reporter: last fall she tried to convince ski officials to let her race against men. >> i feel like barry bonds, that i can't race with the men simply because i'm a woman was definitely gender-biased. >> reporter: but for all of her dominance on skis, vonn's life off the slopes has garnered a lot of attention.
8:08 am
she was romantically linked to tiger woods and in 2010 she appeared in sports illustrated as a swimsuit model. >> obviously she's beautiful, articulate. she is the package. so, yeah, she's the biggest star in the sport. >> reporter: despite the receive verity of her injuries u.s. ski officials are hopeful she will be able to defend her go gold medal. for "cbs this morning" lindsey vonn. >> she's won more world cup victories than any other american. she's an incredible athlete. >> i wouldn't bet against her when she says i've never been afraid of skis ever, i believe her. >> she says she likes speed. >> we know about that, feel the need for speed. >> whatcha talking about, willis? >> vonn released this statement. she's vowing to work as hard as possible to make s

8:15 am
years barber wally riddle has offered a shave and haircut and a blood pressure test. and for most of the customers who have agreed to the test, this arm cuff has been a change agent. >> i've been on top of my vegetables. >> blood pressures have come down tremendously on average where we had about almos cedars-sinai hospital taught him how to take readings, them, and make referrals to doctors. he says the program's secret is that it reaches a population that rarely goes in for checkups. >> the average man with high blood pressure in this barbershop comes every two, four, six weeks to get their hair cut and i think i'm a pretty nice doctor but i've never had that much patronage in my practice. >> reporter: what was the reaction when people came in here and they were offered to take your blood pressure? >> well, they kind of clowned me. they said, what are you turning this into a doctor's office, but i say, hey, this is for you. >> reporter: an estimated 40% of african-americans have high blood pressure. black men are three times as
8:16 am
likely as men to die from it with a heart attack or stroke. 42-year-old derek cobb's first blood pressure reading was a shock to his system. >> i had blood pressure so high that the girl that took it, she thought the machine was broke. >> reporter: so what did you do? >> changed my life. you change your eating habits, you change the stress levels. no offense, ladies, but you've got to calm that down too. >> reporter: so you say it saved your life. >> i would say yes. yes. it made me aware of life. >> reporter: why is high blood pressure such a scourge for african-american men? >> family history, genetics seems to play some role. the environmental factors seem to play a huge role. it's called the silent killer. yeah, it's called a silent killer for a long time because high blood pressure by itself
8:17 am
doesn't hurt and it silently damages the internal organs for years, sometimes decades until someone shows up in the emergency room with a heart attack. so it's complicated and i wish we had a magic bullet. in the meantime we've got the barbershop. >> reporter: this isn't the first time barbers have practiced medicine. in the middle ages barbers cared for soldiers in battle, but while that role would fade, dr. victor say this one will grow. he already estimates there's some form of barbershop checkup going on in every state. >> the idea is to have this adopted by the health care system so that it can be sustained and scaled across the country. that's the real goal is to have an army of barbers. >> reporter: your friendly barber could be the key not just to looking good but living longer too. for "cbs this morning," i'm bill whitaker in california.
